Organise a Life! group course at your workplace
Take the commitment to your employees’ health a step further by getting Life! to deliver a group course onsite at your workplace. Life! sessions can be delivered before work, incorporated into lunch time or after hours. We work with your organisation to tailor the course to the needs of your workplace and staff.
The Life! group course can be tailored to fit your organisation’s needs, offering shorter more frequent sessions or the standard seven sessions across a 12 month period. During the program, eligible staff will learn more about nutrition, physical activity, sleep, managing stress, setbacks and goal setting.

Create a healthier workplace with the Achievement Program
The Achievement Program will help you create a healthier workplace. This can have a huge impact on the lives of your workforce and help to reduce an individual’s risk of developing chronic diseases, like cancer and type 2 diabetes.
The initiative provides workplaces with a framework, tools, resources and training to improve health and wellbeing by making long-term changes to culture and policies.
Members are encouraged to meet best-practice standards (‘benchmarks’) for good health in areas including healthy eating, physical activity, mental health and wellbeing. The Victorian Government provides recognition to workplaces that meet these ‘benchmarks’.
Learn which initiatives from the Life! program can help you to meet the physical activity or healthy eating benchmarks in the Healthy Workplaces Achievement Program here.
